Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

175. Eye Hath Not Seen

1 Beyond our dearest dreams of joy,
A fairer vision glows,
We see by faith that home of bliss
Our Father’s love bestows.

Refrain:
Eye hath not seen,
Ear hath not heard,
Neither hath it entered into the heart of man,
The things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

2 There toil and grief are never known,
Nor sorrow’s bitter tear;
No pain nor death can enter there,
The future holds no fear. [Refrain]

3 The sweetest music earth has known,
The faintest type must be
Of songs that float from angel choirs
Across the crystal sea. [Refrain]

4 Our music thrills with hidden tears,
Celestial songs are glad;
The harmony of golden harps
Holds not a cadence sad. [Refrain]

5 Eternal glories, ever new,
Sweep o’er that region blest;
And he is true who promised us
This land of joy and rest. [Refrain]
